With windows live mail 2011, how do you get a desktop mail notification...
I have the little blue envelope at the bottom right but no little icon to say new mail has arrived....instead I have to constantly log on...
I am using windows 7
Thank You all...

I guess the only way is the leave the window minimized all day...

One approach is to install it on a POP mail desktop client such as Outlook Express or Thunderbird (http://email.about.com/od/mozillathunderbirdtips/qt/et_free_hotmail.htm) rather than use a browser. There is an add-on for Thunderbird that allows it to be minimized to the system tray (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Minimize_to_system_tray_%28Thunderbird%29) and hence inform you from there when new mails arrive.

Just for ****s & giggles, I tried E-prompter (http://www.eprompter.com/) on my laptop for my two accounts & my wife's account. Works Like a charm. Sits in the system tray & tells you how many e-mails you have. Let's you read & delete them. Pretty neat.
